Castro Valley Out-n-Back via Redwood Road

20 / 38 Miles, Rolling Hills, Steep and long Climbs
Meet: 8:45 AM
Ride-Out: 9:30 AM
Welcome to The Sunday Orinda Ride Series. We are an all-pace/all-skill training program. We invite everyone – from novice to speedy – to join us.
The sixth week of the Sunday Orinda Ride Series takes us to Castro Valley for the first time of our training season. We’ll get there via Moraga Way, Canyon Road, and (up and over) lower Pinehurst Road on our way to the long gradual climb on Redwood Road. Our break this week is at Peet’s Coffee in Castro Valley. We’ll then retrace our route back to Orinda. There is the option to take BART back from Castro Valley (at mile 20) and since it is an out-and-back route, there is always the option to shorten the route by turning back at any point. Please note that the climb up Redwood Road on the way BACK from Castro Valley is longer and steeper than the climb on Redwood Road TO Castro Valley.
All skill levels are welcome! If any ride is too much, we will work with you on making sure you have route alternatives during the ride. You will have a great bike ride!
Reach out with any of your questions or concerns. You really can do this.
